A few Nassau-Usingen troopers
« on: November 29, 2021, 12:10:40 PM »
I bought a couple of Napoleonic miniatures ages ago. They were intended for skirmishes that never happened, and I only painted some fusileers then. Now that "The Silver Bayonet" got released, the old plan came to mind again and I remembered those twenty years old models of mine. Regretfully I couldn't find the painted ones anymore, but I knew where the unpainted were left. I dug them out and painted them at last. Here they are:




I don't remember who made them decades ago in true 28mm scale. There are two fusileers from 1st regiment, 3rd company and a drummer as well as five Voltigeurs:

Really nice Michi! I think they might be Perry figures...
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Nice paint job on those figs.  :)

And I just looked at Perry's site - they sure look like Perry Nassaurers...

 For the dark shade, is it the old GW Dark Angel Green maybe? I still have a tiny amount left in the pot it's over 20 years old and still good.

Thanks for your kind comments, gentlemen. There are a few more to come soon...

David, that is Vallejo Model Color 70.970 Deep Green.

For the dark shade, is it the old GW Dark Angel Green maybe?

James, it is the above mentioned green mixed with black.

I finished a grenadier captain and a fusileer lieutenant as an alternative choice of commanding officers for The Silver Bayonet. Both are available on foot or mounted. If the CO dismounts during gameplay the horse will be left useless. I painted one without rider too for table dressing in that case.

The last man is finished. The standard bearer should be a sergeant, but the miniature is a lieutenant. The staff should be striped in yellow and blue, but is plain wood. The flag should be yellow with a golden lion on a blue shield crowned by the duke's crown.

Well, this is what history says. The miniature was sculpted as it is with the flagstaff and a lieutenant's uniform. I added a selfmade paper flag (printer paper folded and hardened with white glue) and painted it in the house of Nassau-Usingen's heraldic colours. So far it is a "could-be" for some protocol duty, but not worn in the field.





Mission accomplished, my task force against the forces of evil is finished - they will not fight in the line, but rather will put up their silver bayonets and load their muskets with silver bulletsÖ
